This three- day course is designed to introduce the speech therapist to manual therapy evaluation and treatment principles and techniques. The fascial system and myofascial release techniques are the primary emphasis, though all types of manual therapy will be discussed. The course will concentrate on general palpation skills as well as a 6-step protocol for voice and swallowing patients.

Sunday is open to former graduates of Level I class for hands-on review. There is emphasis on practice of techniques as well as how to integrate these skills into your individual work situations. Lunch on Sunday will be provided and is included in the cost of the workshop.
